It is with extreme sadness that I read about the recent death of Colin Dexter, creator of Inspector Morse. I was a big fan of both the Inspector Morse books and TV series (somewhat less of a fan of the spinoff TV series Inspector Lewis).
John Thaw who was Morse and Colin Dexter
I highly recommend reading the books and watching the series. You won’t be disappointed. Below is a link to the BBC News obituary for Mr. Dexter. I hope he and Thaw are reuniting.
